    I want to personally say, "thank you," to Darin for sharing his professional insights & up close experience with the thought processes of those behind prison walls, & the process our system uses for treatment. While this was no doubt enlightening to ALL in attendance, it was of particular interest to those of us who have been personally affected by loved ones & friends who've wound up behind bars. Darin's sharing of expertise, with the thought processes of criminals, provided a wealth of information. It provoked many questions from the group, which he answered from an inside & knowledgeable view. I would also like to say, "thank you," to those of you who shared your personal stories with me after the meeting, & showed your support, for my specific situation. Who would've thought a bunch of athiests & skeptics, like myself, could be so caring, right? (Lol!)

    Lastly, thank you, Cole, & our other founders & leaders, for providing forums for our ongoing education & fellowship. - Lonna

      Maybe atheists are just more empathic than the ordinary person. This is why we do not believe in a loving god, who orders killing, rape, or does not answer prayers, and also condemns everyone who does not believe in him to burn in hell to burn in hell for eternity.

    Thanks Darin for a great tour of your job and the prison system. We certainly have a lot to learn to advance the system, but its good to know people like you care enough to help it change. Thanks so much for such a fine presentation. We talked about it at the Green Mill until late.

    The only negative thing I can say about Darin's talk is that I was terribly distracted by his devastating good looks. He's such a sweet potato.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
